Yes they should be around the same.

But for the price difference (and now with z68 board) you should get the k if possible.. whether your going to OC or not (will up the resale value if nothing else)

On your GPU, if you get a monitor that does 1920x1080 then your looking at a 560Ti / 6950 as a very good base.
If budget allows I'd personally go for a 570 / 6970, but it's not entirely necessary.
